Successful candidates will be excluded from the ranking list of the less preferred course and will keep eligibility in the ranking list of the most preferred course.

All eligible candidates will be automatically included in the ranking lists.

Enrollment procedure is detailed in the How to enroll section.

Additional Educational Obligations (OFA) are assigned if the student has achieved a score lower than the established limits in the test (less than 7 for Chemistry, less than 7 for Biology, less than 3 for Mathematics, less than 3 for Physics).

Support for students with OFA will be provided through additional teaching material agreed with the subject teachers from the first year or through specific tutoring, included in the lesson timetable of the first semester of the first year of the course, for each base subject. In both cases, OFA recovery tests will be carried out from December until September of the following year. Attendance at any tutoring courses will be mandatory for students who have OFAs, with exceptions provided for in the regulations for working-parent students approved by the Pharmacy department. Students who have not passed the recovery test for the assigned OFA will not be able to take the second and subsequent year exams.
